NEUROSIS To Play Their First-Ever South American Shows In December
Thirty years of anticipation will come to an end this December: South American fans will finally have the opportunity to experience the live intensity of heavy music pioneers, NEUROSIS.
NEUROSIS, for the first time, will bring its cathartic live experience to South America in late 2017, performing three shows in Brazil, Argentina and Chile.
NEUROSIS has produced eleven studio albums, performed on stages around the planet — each record, each song, each show and each studio experience pushing the band one step further along on a lifelong path of spirit and sonic experimentation.
For the first time in South America, local audiences will feel the trance like power of NEUROSIS’ massive riffs. These South American shows are produced by Brazilian booking agency Abraxas in partnership with Xaninho Discos, beginning in São Paulo, Brazil, on December 8 at Clash Club, followed by shows in Buenos Aires, Argentina, on December 9 at Teatro Vorterix and Santiago, Chile, December 10 at Club Blondie.
"We are honored and humbled by the opportunity to experience a new sonic adventure on a new continent," says Steve Von Till. "Finally, after all this time, we are able to come to South America and. experience first hand the legendary and passionate heavy music scene there."
Remaining ticket information for the South American shows will be announced in the coming weeks.

In September 2016, NEUROSIS — on the heels of several 30th anniversary concerts in the United States and Europe — released Fires Within Fires to worldwide acclaim. The album was named one of the top five Best Metal Albums of the Year by Rolling Stone. Decibel Magazine devoted an entire issue to chronicling NEUROSIS’s history, and Terrorizer featured the band on its cover with the headline: “How One Band Changed the World.”
“NEUROSIS have redefined what heavy meant and what heavy could be, all while refusing to define themselves as anything more than conduits for the music they conjure like diviners,” wrote Decibel.
”What more can be said about NEUROSIS that hasn't already been written, re-written, and re-written once again? They're giants in a field obsessed with hugeness-hugeness of riff, of amplifier, of decibel, of ambition-and are a seemingly unbreakable sonic force,” said Noisey of Fires Within Fires. “When Scott Kelly, Steve Von Till, Jason Roeder, Noah Landis, and Dave Edwardson come together (and especially when they do so under the steady hand of longstanding engineer Steve Albini) the result is the kind of tectonic earth magic that the word doom was invented to personify. Whatever it is they continue to seek, this latest offering is a massive step forward towards it.”

The summer of 2017 sees NEUROSIS on the road again: traveling to Europe and, in mid-summer, playing shows in Eastern Canada and along the eastern seaboard of the United States.
